Anti-Trump protests might not get any crazier than this!
A Dallas high school teacher has been suspended for a video showing her shooting a squirt gun at a projected image of President Donald Trump from his Inauguration.
During the mock assassination, Payal Modi, an art teacher at Adamson High School, can be heard screaming "Die!" as she shoots the gun at a whiteboard projecting the Inauguration coverage, according to Fox 4 Dallas.
Modi posted the video to her Instagram account with the caption, "Watching the #inauguration in my classroom like... #no #stop #denial #squirtgun #hypocrisy #powerless." The post has since been removed.
Though it is not clear if students were in the classroom at the time, other voices can be heard in the background of the video.
The school placed Modi on paid administrative leave. A letter went home to parents informing them of the incident, and the school released the following statement:
"The teacher has been placed on administrative leave and the district has opened an investigation. This is a personnel matter and, as such, we cannot comment."
A representative for the Secret Service said they are aware of the situation but cannot comment about any investigative action that might be underway.
